How to find missing historical documents

Mark Simpson of BBC Northern Ireland called me last night to ask for my reaction to the distressing news that the 1926 census has been mislaid. I didn't come up with any quoteworthy lines at the time, but this morning - after, as it turned out, he had filed the story - my wife and I had a couple of thoughts which I sent to him and which he was kind enough to include in the radio coverage of the story. The funnier of the two thoughts is actually not mine, but Anne's.

(I'll be in Belfast on Thursday to launch the expanded elections site.)
